Freddie Spaghetti thinks that there is more to life than sitting on a plate and waiting to get eaten. So, he and his trusty pet Meat Ball board a bus and go to Mexico. There, they meet Enrique Enchilada, who is suffering from a broken heart. His friend, Teresa Taco, is a hard taco, and she has been mean to everyone since becoming one. Freddie and Meat Ball want to help Enrique. When Teresa comes down the street, Freddie and Meat Ball try to help her, but she wouldn’t listen. Will Teresa ever become a nice, soft taco?
This was a good book. The book had a nice plot to it. It seemed like there was a bit of romance with Enrique and Teresa which was funny. I found a couple of editing errors with quotes. I thought the pictures were ok but Josie really liked them. The story has a lot of words and younger kids would need it read out loud (Josie liked hearing the story out loud). The idea of Freddie a spaghetti noodle coming to life and being bored in his bowl was funny. I think this is a good book for kids 4+.
I give “The Adventures of Freddie Spaghetti and Meat Ball” 4 out of 5 bookworms (I was going to give it a 3 – meaning a “good book” but my sister was yelling to give it 4 – meaning a great book, so I decided to listen to her because this book is more for her age ;) ).
